Metro Police Warn Nashvillians About Phone Scam (2014/07/18)

Metro Police Warn Nashvillians About Phone Scam

 

July 18, 2014

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

          Fraud Unit detectives are warning Nashvillians about a scam that has occurred at least three times in the past 36 hours in which a person with a foreign accent calls from what appears to be a police department phone number and tells the person they must pay money or face arrest.

          The Metro Nashville Police Department wants to make it very clear that these calls are absolutely false.  In one case, the man identified himself as Chief George Turner and told the victim that he was calling about a federal warrant.  No one from the Metro Police Department will ever call a citizen seeking payment of any kind.

          Anyone who receives such a call is encouraged to hang up and report it by calling the Emergency Communications Center at 862-8600.

MNPD Urges Motorists & Pedestrians to Watch Out for Each Other (2014/06/03)

June 3, 2014

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

          In an effort to raise awareness regarding pedestrian safety, the MNPD’s Traffic Section, which investigates fatal crashes, is urging motorists and pedestrians to watch out for each other.

     In 2013, fifteen pedestrians died in fatal collisions.  A contributing factor in six of those crashes was alcohol involvement on the part of the pedestrian.  In nine deaths, a contributing factor was pedestrian in the roadway.                                                    

          Safe pedestrian tips include:

 

Be Aware:

·        Be predictable. Follow the rules of the road and obey signs and signals.

·        Walk on sidewalks whenever they are available.

·        If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic and as far from traffic as possible.

·        Keep alert at all times-don’t be distracted by electronic devices.

·        Cross at crosswalks or intersections whenever possible.

·        Look for cars in all directions – including those turning left or right.

·        If a crosswalk or intersection is not available, locate a well-lit area, wait for a gap in traffic that allows you enough time to cross safely, and continue to watch for traffic as you cross.

Be Seen:

·        Never assume a driver sees you. Make eye contact with drivers as they approach.

·        Be visible at all times. Wear bright clothing during the day and reflective gear at night. Carry a flashlight.

·        Watch for cars entering or exiting driveways, or backing up in parking lots.

 

Arrive Alive:

·        Avoid alcohol and drugs when walking; they impair your abilities and judgment.

     

Tips for motorists include:

 

·        Look out for pedestrians everywhere, at all times. Safety is a shared responsibility.

·        Use extra caution when driving in hard-to-see conditions.

·        Slow down and be prepared to stop when entering a crosswalk.

·        Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.

·        Stop a safe distance from the crosswalk to give other vehicles an opportunity to see the crossing pedestrians.

·        Never pass vehicles stopped at a crosswalk. There may be people crossing that you can’t see.

·        Never drive under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

·        Follow the speed limit.

·        Obey speed limits in school zones and wherever children are present.

·        Be extra cautious when backing up – pedestrians can move into your path.

 

Motorists are also urged to exercise caution with school out for the summer and the increased number of children playing outside.

Murder Suspect Santerius Lavender in Custody (2013/06/18)

June 18, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

            A Crime Stoppers tip led to today’s apprehension in Memphis of murder suspect Santerius Lavender, 24, who was wanted for the April 9th fatal shooting of Chad Allen Daniel on Hillside Avenue.

            Investigation by West Precinct detectives shows that Daniel, 33, was shot while in the front passenger seat of a Nissan Altima that had been driven to apartments at 1330 Hillside Avenue by his 26-year-old friend, who had arranged to make a drug buy from Lavender’s girlfriend, Bershia Edens.  The 26-year-old reported that as he approached Edens in a breezeway, a gunman, alleged to have been Lavender, appeared and demanded money.  The 26-year-old said he threw down his wallet and ran back to the Altima as the gunman followed.  He said that as he tried to pull away, shots were fired into the car and Daniel was struck.  The 26-year-old then drove to Wedgewood Avenue, where he noticed a police officer working a traffic assignment at Wedgewood & Beech.  He pulled over there and asked for help.  Daniel was already dead.

            Edens, 24, of 1330 Hillside Avenue, was jailed May 31st on a Davidson County Grand Jury indictment charging her with first-degree murder, especially aggravated robbery and aggravated robbery.  Lavender, who is being returned to Nashville from Memphis, faces the same charges.

South Precinct Detectives Arrest Suspected Serial Burglar Jovany Garces & Wife from our TIP (2013/06/13)

June 13, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

          A tip to Crime Stoppers led to Wednesday’s arrest of suspected serial burglar Jovany Garces who is believed responsible for at least 10 business break-ins in the Nashville area since the first of the year.

          The Crime Stoppers tip came after the police department Tuesday night released surveillance images of the man who broke into Sally Beauty Supply at 55 E. Thompson Lane on June 6th and stole the safe.  Through further investigation, including an analysis of evidence found at the scene of Wednesday morning’s burglary at Twin Kegs Bar at 413 Thompson Lane that directly linked Garces to that case, an arrest warrant was issued.  South Precinct detectives and officers late Wednesday afternoon arrested Garces at his Linbar Drive apartment after finding him hiding inside a child’s closet.  A safe from one of the burglaries was found in the apartment’s master bedroom.  Garces was taken to General Hospital for treatment of an arm laceration apparently received in the Twin Kegs break-in and then to jail.

          Additional warrants were issued today charging Garces with the June 4th burglary of the same Twin Kegs location and the June 6th burglary of Sally Beauty Supply at 55 E. Thompson Lane.  Detectives believe Garces is also connected to the following burglaries:

·        Daniela’s Bar at 12 E. Thompson Lane on January 4th and June 3rd;

·        Bikini Beach Bar at 1297 Antioch Pike on June 5th;

·        Sally Beauty Supply at 3143 Lebanon Pike on June 6th;

·        Sally Beauty Supply at 78 White Bridge Road on June 8th;

·        Sally Beauty Supply at 5320 Mt. View Road on June 9th; and

·        Sally Beauty Supply at 4414 Lebanon Pike on June 10th.

          During an interview with Garces’ wife, Janitzia Amor, 37, detectives learned that she drove him to at least some of the burglary locations.  She was arrested this afternoon on three counts of burglary facilitation.

June 5, 2013

          A special collection box will also be on site from 8 a.m. to 12 noon Saturday to receive outdated/unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medication.  Citizens are encouraged to safely dispose of medicines in this manner instead of throwing them into the trash or flushing pills down a commode.
